This site was created to advance understanding of the Nugent family, especially the branch that settled in the Caribbean island of Antigua around 1720, staying there for two and a half centuries, a quarter millennium. It brings together research carried out in Antigua and Britain.
The Nugents have a tendency to use the same Christian names in subsequent generations so where possible Oliver Nugents have been identified by a title or date of birth or death. Another tendency is to incorporate a surname connected with the family as a middle name.
Descendants or relatives of those featured, whether or not they bear the Nugent surname, are encouraged to contribute profiles of themselves or their branch of the family.
